King Point Marina
AWW was appointed to provide a 179 berth marina as part of the Millbay area regeneration strategy by the SouthWest RDA and Plymouth City Council. The development transforms the inner basin of the historic Brunel-designed docks and provides a focal point for future phases of development on the surrounding dock-side, providing top class facilities with easy access to Plymouth Sound.
King Point Marina provides sheltered berths for vessels from five metres to 25 metres in length. A two-storey shoreside building offer showers, toilets and amenity areas for berth holders on the ground floor and 1,776sqft of commercial space on the first floor, with terraces commanding superb views over Millbay and Plymouth Sound.
We have delivered an exemplar marina, the first in the UK for five years and invested £4million. We are delighted with AWW’s striking contemporary design for the shoreside building. AWW has achieved a quality of design that will set a high benchmark for future developments on Plymouth’s waterfront. The design has delivered what we were looking for, a balance between traditional and modern, and the timber provides a traditional material but in a modern way. Jason Schofield
